The course covers the skills, knowledge and understanding required for teaching students over the age of 16. At the university, you will develop your understanding of your chosen specialism including knowledge of key questions, theories and concepts as well as the development of your own personal skills. For a substantial part of the course you will study in a specialist group. At other times you will study in a larger group, alongside those planning to teach other subjects at post 16, from leisure and tourism to music technology and beyond.
A 2.1 degree or above (or a recognised equivalent) with some relevance to the chosen subject is desirable. Evidence of interest in, and understanding of, learning and the learners in your chosen subject area. Level 3 skills in the specialist subject. Mathematics and English language GCSE grade C or above (or equivalent) are desirable. Where English is not a native language IELTS level 6.5 (minimum of 5.5 in each band) or equivalent is required. A health declaration, DBS check and ISA registration required as appropriate.
Assessment tasks include learner case studies, group tasks, posters, small scale research projects and practical teaching observation. There are no formal written examinations. Professional practice will be assessed by a series of observations and assessments of your teaching.
